All recorded events have no duration

Hi all,

My zoneminder install was working great up until a few weeks ago, i've just noticed that all recorded events have a duration of 0.0

It triggers fine but doesn't seem to actually record anything, anyone any ideas why this is happening?

Yep, i'm getting that argument error as well now.....

The script looks like a good starting point, just needs looking at. I've tried to get in touch with Trendkill via email and msn but with no joy :(

Ok, i've come in this morning and checked the events so far and am seeing the screen below http://s3.postimage.org/4ULv0.jpg As you can see, there is an event which seems to have no details and also an event that is shorter than the 15 minutes minimum I have set. Anyone any ideas what is happening? ...

Right, i've had a look at the first event, it was 27:42 in length.

The last bit of motion that I can see on the video is at 7:10

Yet the video carried on recording for a further 20:30

Anyone any ideas on why?

Ok, checked the server today and I have one 27minute event from one camera and two half hour events from the other.

Just downloading the video now to check if things all match up

Ok, ive set my cameras up as follows....

As I see it, this should start recording an event 25 frames before it happens and keep recording for 15minutes after the event..

There is nobody in the office at the moment so I can't confirm but does this look correct?

Ok, i've made some progress. I've set the section length to 1800 seconds so when it detects motion it will record for 30 minutes after the event.

Is there a way to extend this recording indefinitley whilst it is still detecting motion?

I have two analogue cameras connected to BT848 cards in my ZM 1.24 installation. I would like to configure them so that once motion is detected, they will carry on recording for 30 minutes, if further motion is detected before the 30 minutes ends, then the time will be extended for a further 30 minu...
